Arts/Visual & Written: Incarceration Affect on Families and Community

This project includes writings, art exhibit, documentary, a book. Will focus on art making & writing that show how incarceration of humans has impacted families & communities who are related. Responding to the question - How we can can use art to protest, process, & object to How Incarceration Affects Families & Communities? Along with offering written works & art that take up the subject, we will create a documentary, and post our outcome online to show our discussion of the ethics of representation, & what it means to write about this violence & trauma, neglect & damage of people incarcerated & their families/communities. We will focus on the craft of writing and art, which will engage viewers in responding to the works of art in the exhibition.  In the Chicago neighborhood of North Lawndale, there is disagreement as to how many residents have been incarcerated at some time in their lives. It has been suggested that from 47% to 85% of families have had someone in their family imprisoned at some time. Imagine the effect on the children, families, school system, neighborhood, & the self-esteem & attitude of this community. Ask for guidelines on how to enter.

We will also provide opportunities for groups to see the exhibit and learn from it. This can include a workshop in the garden if requested. 

Location: 
Liz Long Gallery at Urban Art Retreat Center 1957 S. Spaulding Ave. Chicago, Illinois 60623

Pigeon Review Flash Fiction Competition

Share

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Pigeon Review is one year old! The idea for Pigeon Review was sparked on a park bench in the Spring of 2021 inspired by the quirky, resourceful, beautiful, and often overlooked little creatures wandering around us. We felt camaraderie in that way with our feathered friends. We knew we couldn't be the only ones who felt this way; quirky, resourceful, creative, and overlooked, trying to break barriers by flying headfirst into them.

We set out to be a place for stories and art that evoke a sense a place; pieces that may have been overlooked for their simplicity or deemed mundane. Most of all, we set out to foster community. We wanted be a place that values its contributors and every person who submits; a place that promotes honesty and kindness.​

It’s been just over a year since Pigeon Review was born and we can’t be more proud of where we are and what our more than 130 contributors have accomplished! ​

To celebrate Pigeon's first birthday, we are hosting our first competition! From the beginning, Pigeon Review has been a leap of faith. We had no idea if anybody would like Pigeon Review, if anyone would submit, or would even be able find us in the masses of art and literary journals. Every part of Pigeon Review comes from us, no pre-formatted web pages or form emails, which sometimes includes the less glamorous aspects like typos and broken web links. We put ourselves into each detail and our favorite part of that is that we get to make genuine connections with our contributors. We continue to take these leaps and are pleasantly surprised as we grow.
